I don't know what it is about the line, but it makes me cringe all the same.


The Hot Space album is full of horrid lyrics. I cringe every time I hear Freddie sing "Ain't no doubt about it" in Dancer. Brian May has often tried to write American lingo, and failed every time :lol:

As much as a guilty pleasure Hot Space is, I agree there.
Stealin' is also a horrible listen. Not only due to the lingo but that weird accent aswell.

If we can extend the discussion to solo projects, On My Way Up by Brian always made me cringe. "I've got positivism to give 'em"????

And Freddie's Living On My Own...."I don't have no time for no monkey business". Triple negative! :lol:

Would it save you a lot of time if I just gave up and went mad now?

Noooo, no no ;) See what I did there?
No joke, I think that's one of the best and powerful lyrics. I remember gasping the first time I heard it.
~Godspeed little one~
~Don't talk about angels
Or how I'll be saved
I'm no coward
But I'm not that brave
Rags are blowing
Rain's getting near
I'm done with running
And it's getting dark in here~

~Sleep in peace old friend for me you'll never die~

I see :lol:
Mamamia, mamamia

It’s powerful, but I always grind my teeth, because I hate it. Maybe that doesn’t make it „weak“, but for me it’s a no. I can see though, that other people like it. Actually I was never a fan of the BoRap lyrics. The music is great, the lyrics are just weird. :lol:

Oh Nicki 79...ouch, my poor heart! :sadw:
:lol: :P
It's of course okay, more than okay that you feel that way. ;)
I love Bohemian Rhapsody so much, it's my favorite song by anyone. It's not for everyone, I know, but the first time I heard it, I very much indentified with it....well most of it anyways. I won go out nto details, but it changed my life. I wouldn't change a thing about the song, not even the strange section. Queen at their OTT goodness :D
